5.0 out of 5 stars Great keyboard coupled with great software = Perfect., 23 April 2014
This review is from: Roccat ROC-12-722 Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard UK Layout (Accessory)
I have owned my Roccat Isku for over a year now and it's still going strong.
This board gets quite heavy usage and its still as crisp and sharp as the day I bought it.
Personally I don't find the keys to be loud, there have had no issues with sticky/squeaky/unresponsive keys, keys coming off or coming loose and I have given this keyboard some serious stick. (even the odd rage thump) :)

With your thumb on the thumbster buttons all macro keys are very easy to touch so no hand/wrist contortions are needed.

I like the 5 profile slots you can switch between at the touch of a button or mouse (if it's Roccat talk compatable) plus the load/save profile feature, you can also import profiles for games that other people have made.
The ability to bind a single profile to 3 games is also a nice touch, when you start a game the keyboard automatically switches to that profile and when exiting the keyboard reverts to your chosen Windows profile.

Don't just think of this as a gaming keyboard either, whatever program your using such as Photoshop or whatever this keyboard will prove its worth there too.
For example: I use a password safe for website logins (keepass) and have assigned the T2 button to automate the copy/paste from the password safe program to the web page, meaning to log into any website I have to just press one button. Now that's funky!

The board has cable routing underneath for wired mice, so you can feed cable from anywhere to anywhere, which is nice.

The best though is the software interface, it's so damn good.
You can configure if you want the keyboard to stay illuminated or to go dark after 1-30 minutes without use, or just to go dim.
Deactivate either or both Windows keys. (prevents accidental minimizing when in full-screen mode)
Fine tune macro's, like key press duration and even overlap key presses.
Choose which media player it shortcuts the media keys to - your PC's default or Windows Media Player, Winamp, itunes or vlc media player.

Get a Roccat talk compatible mouse and you can adjust setting on the mouse with the keyboard and vice versa...awesome!! (for example adjusting mouse dpi settings via the keyboard for such things as sniping in first person shooter's or inside Photoshop for finer/sharper control)

My only minor gripe and for me it is minor, the lack of illumination to the media keys.

For the money I think this is as good as a keyboards gets before you start paying for gimmicky Ooo features (like on-board screens).
